I am Paul McCartney.

Today, I was packing lunches for our field trip to the Norman Rockwell Museum (which is actually a nice place to go). My favorite band is the Beatles (which, I will point out, I liked before everyone else, so HA!) and I was listening to one of their CDs called Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. (Which I have loved since I was, like, four.)

Casey (little brother) comes in and askes, "Cass, is this the Beatows?" (aka, Beatles)
I said, "Yes, it is." I showed him the CD cover jacket.
He started naming them. "Dat's Paul, dat's Ringo, dat's George, and...who's that guy?"
I laughed, "that's John Lennon."
"Yeah."

So a couple of minutes later, my other younger brother, Aidan, comes into the kitchen and I'm still listening to the CD. Casey goes up to him and goes, "this is the Beatows!"

Aidan came name them all except for Ringo. He asked me which one was my favorite. I said, "Paul."
Aidan goes, "I love John!"
I found this funny but slightly awkward. Casey informed us that he likes Paul and Ringo. And we all know that Corrina likes George Harrison.

Later, we were unpacking lunches at the museum, and mom pulls out a sandwich. "This one says RINGO on it," She said. She sounded rather alarmed.
"That's Casey's."
Mom pulls out another one. "John."
"That's Aidan's."
Another sandwich. "Paul?"
"That's me."
Another sandwich. "Corrina."
No comment neccesary.

So I am Paul McCartney today. For those of you who don't know, the Beatles were famous in the sixties. John Lennon is guitar, George Harrison is lead guitar, Paul McCartney plays bass, and Ringo Starr plays drums.

I'll also say that today, I was looking at pictures on Weheartit and I'd searched the Beatles to see what came up. There was this REALLY awesome quote that this guy said. He said, "I love Ringo Starr." This girl said, "Nobody loves Ringo Starr." The guy said, "That's why I love him."

Ha. I found that funny.

Meh

How I gained a follower is beyond me.

Hello, people! Remember me? If you said, that girl who's wearing a shirt with a ninja and an alien, YOU ARE CORRECT! If you said, the girl who's drowning a chipmunk in a toilet, YOU ARE MISTAKEN, SIR!

Okay! Moving on!

Well, to kick off THIS post, I will anounce that I have nothing really important to SAY. So....VIDEO TIME!


I'll give it you free if you give me a comment.

I would also like to note that this may be the first time I have ever tagged/awarded a boy (well, excepting Pastor Mike, but he does not count) on this blog. But I know Tim. So this is different.

Bye and leave comments so that I don't get all sad!

A letter

Hi. Everyone out there, please read this letter:

Dear everybody reading this,

I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger. I'm sorry I don't post anymore. I'm sorry I make you leave the comments with NOs with ten more Os. I'm sorry I don't do what you want me to. I'm sorry I don't meet your standards. I'm sorry I'm not perfect. These things can not be helped.
But sorry does not make an interesting post.
The thing is that I am who I am. I make mistakes. I slack off from blogging and make you leave the little comments that make me want to smile. I'm lonely. I am a lonely, homeschooled girl who does not have a social life and has no friends.
Think of your friends. Count them on your fingers. If you run out, count on a piece of paper. I can take three fingers: Krista, Jessica, Shannon. I feel lonely. Nobody calls me. I think I bore people. I've never really thought of myself as a boring person. I mean, all my phone calls with my friends are nice. They'll sound excited to hear me. Shannon laughs her head off every time. So...remind me why, if you're enjoying this so much, you cannot make the effort to call?
I don't think I'm a boring person. I don't dress like everybody else, nor look like, nor talk like, nor sound like...I am not another Hannah Montana, bleach-blond, way-too-much-makeup, ew-mud-and-bugs, hooray-for-boys ditzy clone. But maybe people are bored with me...I don't blame other people. I'm not going to change. This is the Cassidy you're stuck with, America! This is it, the grand total! No more, no less!!!!
Once, I was in a mall, going to Target to get some pictures taken. I passed these two girls. One of them was the aforementioned clone. She looked nice. She wore a pink shirt, blue jeans, lipstick, and eyeliner. Her hair was blond. She looked trendy. She looked rather nice.
The other girl looked wild. Short, crazy hair, skinny jeans that were torn in a million places, a studded belt, lip pierced, eyebrows pierced, a million earrings, and black floppy high-tops. Not trendy. Not another supermodel-oh-I-need-to-wear-these-clothes-to-look-cool girl. She smiled at me. I smiled back.
I want to be like that girl. I want some random chick at the mall to look at me and think, wow, I want to be like that girl. I do not mean I would like my eyebrow pierced. This is not the point! The point is, I want to stand out. I want to be noticed. Don't we all?
Love, with all due respect and such wonders,
Cassidy

I am apparently either losing your interest or my interest.

Sorry I haven't been posting very much lately, downstairs computer has been crappy and laptop is off-limits, Internet wise. I don't have that much to say! Ugh, I am such a slacker.

That's probably my biggest fault; I'm not a fan of work and will show that, by all means. Blogging isn't work, but I seem to be, ehem, putting it off.  Nobody seems to care, tho, because I have noticed a rather unpleasant decrease in COMMENTS and FEEDBACK and STATS and NEW FOLLOWERS!!!!

I guess my blogger fame is pretty much over, since I've gotten, like, two comments in the past week. Oddly, I'm a little happy about that. I mean, yeah, it does say that apparently I'm getting less interesting or you guys are getting too lazy to click COMMENT, but at least now I'm not expected to post every day and be the best thing since microwave bologna.

Which, in my opinion, is the best made-up product there is.

I think I might be taking a blogger vacation like Pastor Mike did a while ago. Maybe even post once a month or something, just so you know I'm okay.

I thought that my big five-minutes-of-blogger-fame would last forever, I guess. I mean, I was getting 7-9 comments per post, and lots of feedback and stats and new followers were coming often. Now, I'm just another blogger, getting less comments then those guys with five-to-nine followers and being kinda demoted.

Okay, well, you two-people-who-are-still-interested-in-me-and-I-guess-I'm-boring-all-of-a-sudden can leave your comments now. :) :)

Smile

Smile.
Be the happy one.
Put a smile on that face and make somebody's day.
Make somebody laugh.
Cheer someone up today.
You don't have to be as creepy as the cat.

Be the sunshine in somebody's life.
Goof off and laugh once a day.
Frowning doesn't get you anywhere.

Don't be a downer.
Live your life the way YOU want.
Grin at every joke, even if it's stupid.

Laugh it off.
Whatever it is, it's okay.
Have some fun today.

If nobody smiled, the world would be sad.
Cheer up.
Be happy-go-lucky.

Smile.
Cuz Jesus loves you.

Really dumb warning signs

These made me laugh. Here are the warnings for products that are actually, uh, not protecting anyone in any way. Except from being bored.

Label: Never operate your speakerphone while driving.
Product: Jabra Drive 'N' Talk.
So, uh, how do you operate it?

Label: This product may contain nuts.

WHY WOULD I DO THAT?!?!

Yes.

To make you laugh

It was Abby's birthday on Saturday. Abby's a member of my video group, where we make YouTube videos. We did a special video for her birthday. This one isn't it, but it's her favorite.

Happy birthday, Abby! Ten years old...the big double-digits. Thanks for all that you do for us, gal pal!

Once you're done laughing, you can comment.

Well, there goes a week

Okay, yeah, I know. I gave you blogfest and then didn't post for a week. I've been busy, though. 5-K (or three mile run) training has been taking up all of my bloggin' time! (Yes, I am running a marathon. And to those who are concerned, it is not a diet, it is limiting what I eat)

As most of you know, I go to youth group on most Sundays, and I went (after going to Krista's house) last night. PMike was talking about stewardship (although he was pronouncing it "stewarship" and spelled it like that on the board, I noticed) and about how all the things we have are God's and that we're just taking care of them.

The last thing he pointed out was about our talents. I realize that sometimes, I just write fluff on this blog. He actually completely changed his blog and recreated it. I would love to be able to do that, but this blog isn't a total waste of internet browser and I'd like to keep it. However, I want to do SOMETHING to use my writing for God.

You can find my new CHRISTIAN-BASED blog over at God's Writer Girl, and I'd love it if you could follow. If I don't post on there, I won't post on here. That's my rule. If I want to write, write for God first, then write for you guys. (heh, sorry, you guys)

COMMENT TIME! Tell me what you think of my new blog, or of the whole idea! Since this is a Christian-based post, I will put a cap on the comments. Please don't give me any God-is-just-a-lie stuff, that brings me down. (Not to mention the fact that it is not true) Bye! (I'll try and do better in the posting department)
